On August 10, at approximately 6:20 a.m., a female in her 40's was arriving at work in her vehicle in the 600 block of Notre Dame Avenue. Three female suspects approached her car and began banging on the windows. The victim exited the vehicle at which time she was assaulted by two of the suspects. The suspects fled on foot after stealing the victim's personal property.
The victim was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The victim's vehicle was also damaged in the incident.
Also on August 10, at approximately 3:10 a.m., a female victim in her 40's was walking in the 1800 block of Pembina Highway when she was confronted by four female suspects who demanded her personal property. The victim was assaulted numerous times but suffered only minor injuries.
